    Re: New Purchase, have some questions

    Looks exactly like the Tag on my wrist right now (except mine is in desperate need of a cleanup/polish after seeing yours.)

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    No one can tell from these pictures.

    Re: Fake busters thread: ask about authenticity in this thread!

    My commanding officer in the coast guard just came back from six weeks in Afghanistan. He killed his G-shock in combat and on his off day had stopped in an area off the beaten path commonly known for its black market where the area venders buy and sell contraband items, and items sold by mercs and other drug cartels. From what my CO had stated, the dealer a lot of the service members deal with tends to trade in items coming from killed/assassinated cartel members. To make a long story short, the deal sold him a watch for $20 USD, claimed to be authentic.

    Skip ahead, while having dinner with my CO, he had a broken Fossil watch a G-shock and an Armatron, all casualties of combat. We had to make a beer run when I found a black watch in his cup holder. It was the one he bought at the black market. At first I noticed it had some heft to it and was an automatic. I then noticed it had a hand missing from the right side that apparently took the brunt of abuse from his checked luggage. Any case he offered to let me have it since it was a $20 dollar watch he bought just to last him the rest of the week. Not tempting fate, he chose not to wear it in the field.

    It was then I noticed it was labeled as a Tag Heuer. I spent a good deal of time researching tonight the criteria for non-compliant TH watches, and for the most part it appears legit, but I'm still not 100% sure. The only thing that really is not sitting well with me is the act t hat I do not see a model number or S/N on it anywhere. I realize that it is possible to be written inside somewhere. I just do not have the expertise with TH to really make an educated call on the authenticity.

    Looks very fake to me, and as such I guess the price was reasonable Google "Heuer Mikrograph" to see what it should look like.

    Hi everybody,
    I would like to know your feeling about the authenticity of this TAG HEUER S/EL, model CG1110-0, from (around) 1996. Serial number: J88240.
    I only have these 3 pictures from the seller which is a person like you and I (no professionnal watch retailer); no papers, no box, all "lost while moving", nothing but the watch and a cool price...
    I've tried to check every detail I could, I also took a look in old TAG catalogs, I contacted TAG itself (but I still waiting for an answer)... until now it seems ok. What do you think? The person lives far away and I cannot see it in real, but a friend will check it in person for me.
    Thanks a lot for your feedback!

    By what indications? I'm pretty sure it is not authentic as well, but going over all the indications I have read online, I have not been able to make the conclusion, and not sure if it is a matter which indication I am missing.

    Thanks Melba but I ain't looking for a valuation, I already have an agreed price (and I've also been spending time on Ebay looking at every S/EL I could).
    I am really looking for any if the S/EL is real or not... I'm sorry the pics are not so good, that's all I have...
    If I purchase it, I'll let you know!
